Not the first time at all that I've had lunch at Squeeze. We were seated quickly and encouraged to download the menu via our phones...as you do these days. My lunch companion and myself both went for the Chicken, Bacon and Brie wrap which was very tasty indeed and the accompanying salad had a nice sweet dressing too. With a couple of drinks to accompany our food..we were able to eat and chat in a great place in Leigh. All in all, a well chosen venue for our Wednesday lunch.

Great little cafe in the heart of Leigh-on-Sea. Wonderful menu choices for our breakfast/brunch. COVID friendly. Felt safe. Staff were welcoming. Unobtrusive music in the background. Will always return. Has become my “go to”!

Great food and Juices. The back room upstairs is a bit draughty. Other than that it’s a great spot for breakfast.

The service was great. Coffees and Smoothies were also excellent. The food was a bit too cold for my taste - room temperature - although beautifully presented and it did taste good. It just would have been better if it was a tad hotter.

Service was great and with the 50% off scheme it was very good value as well. Only negative was we went for breakfast and I really wish you would have more sweet options available such as granola, acai bowls or pancakes as we would definitely be back a lot more!

My dish was absolutely lovely, I had the halloumi and shrooms! My partner sadly did not like his dish very much, plus it had some things in it that he can't really eat that weren't listed. However it does say to mention any allergies (his are more intolerances) and whilst I was happy to mention that he needed a different meal, he was not, so we didn't really give them a chance to rectify. Will definitely be back as have eaten there before and it was delicious! My partner just knows not to have that particular dish again! Great vibe to the place!
